?Metso’s recycling business provides equipment and services for mechanical treatment of metal scrap and solid waste

Finnish recycling company Metso is relocating its waste recycling business to a new facility in Horsens, Denmark.

Metso’s recycling business provides equipment and services for mechanical treatment of metal scrap and solid waste.

Its current facility, built in the 1960s, no longer supports the company’s growing operational model.

The waste business has had a hub in Denmark since Metso acquired Danish company M&J in 2009.

Uffe Hansen, president of Metso recycling business area, is optimistic the new site will cater for the changing demands of the sector.

He said: “I’m hoping the new site can offer a better logistical set up designed for our lean production model. It will also enable us to move admin and production much closer to each other, supporting a more dynamic working environment.”

The transaction is subject to final approval of the area’s development plan by Horsens City Council.

Hansen added: “Recycling is one of the seven business areas in Metso, and our growth targets are supported by the global mega trends such as urbanisation, growing middle class, increasing waste volumes, limited natural resources etc.

We are very well positioned in this market and will continue to develop our recycling business going forward.”

The new site is planned to be ready by 2020.
